Help with Haro flightline sport.
Hello all. I recently bought a Haro flightline sport from a lbs and I was wondering what you guys think this bike is appropriate for? For instance....if I took this bike off a decent sized dirt jump would I risk breaking anything on the bike? Also.....I am looking into slowly upgrading this bike....What parts should I replace?
This bike is a great all-around cross country bike. I wouldn't use it for full-on dirt jumping, but yes, you can take it off of the normal sort of jumps you'd find on local trails. It will hold up just fine.
The reason I don't recommend it for DJ use (like in the video) is because of the geometry. It's not going to be the most maneuverable bike in the air, but if you drop the seat you could probably get by.
As far as upgrading goes, just ride it until you break something. Then replace the broken part with something a bit nicer. As you ride, and develop your style, you'll know which parts are inadequate for your type of riding.
